Dear all,
I am happy to announce the release of OSRM v0.3.7 [1], your favorite OpenStreetMap based routing engine. This is a pretty big release with more than 360 commits (or 12,500+ diff lines) and gives us huge improvements for running OSRM in a high-availability production environment. OSRM now handles data updates very transparently through the use of a new memory management sub-system and does not require the shutdown of the routing process.
This is the shortened change log:
- shared memory data storage
- more efficient output generation, esp. on long-distance queries
- car profile supports impassability tags used by HOT
- support for LUA 5.2
- fixed polyline generalization
- removed unused legacy code
- moved several header files to compile units
- fix build on OS X Mavericks
- fix linking on Ubuntu 13.10
- log output now use terminal coloring
- integration of external data
As always, we are dog-fooding our releases and the code of v0.3.7 is already running on our demo site [2] for a couple of days now. A post on the MapBox blog [3] will be available shortly after this announcement with more technical details on how the new memory management works in practice. Big thanks to everyone who contributed to this important milestone release!
Dennis (on behalf of Team OSRM)
